Shared Innovation Center
A shared scientific platform for accelerated discovery
With the goal of accelerating the drug development process to produce real-world results and life-changing therapies, this confidential client and Fortune 500 company partnered with Flad to establish a West Coast-based research entity. Located in the heart of South San Francisco's booming biopharma sector, this interior fit-out provides approximately 62,000 square feet of leasable space designed to attract best-in-talent prospective tenants.
The Shared Innovation Center serves as an industry-wide pioneer, utilizing a novel co-working laboratory concept to foster and speed the discovery of life-changing medicines and therapies through collaboration with small, early-stage biotech companies throughout the Bay Area. All tenants have direct access to the client's leading scientists, executives, and regulatory experts, in addition to a state-of-the-art facility with cutting-edge research equipment and technology.
Spanning two floors, the new facility carefully balances modern workplace design with flexible laboratories and support space to create a robust scientific environment and platform for discovery. Thirty-four wet lab modules with movable benches can be easily customized to create larger or smaller spaces, as tenants and evolving research needs change. An abundance of multi-size gathering areas, open and private workstations, and informal break-out spaces cater to a wide range of work styles while encouraging collaboration and interaction.
Through this new collaborative research concept, tenants can leverage the extensive capabilities and resources of the national client conglomerate, providing the means and tools necessary to rapidly translate innovations from concept to reality – a win-win for all.
